Reliance Jio, on November 19, said it will raise the tariffs of its mobile phone call and data charges in the next few weeks.

According to a release, the plan to raise these tariffs sought to comply with the regulatory regime.

"Like other operators, we will also work with the Government and comply with the regulatory regime to strengthen the industry to benefit Indian consumers and take measures including appropriate increase in tariffs in next few weeks in a manner that does not adversely impact data consumption or growth in digital adoption and sustains investments," stated the release.


The release also noted that Jio is committed to always being regulatory compliant, and it will work with the industry to keep the telecom sector a vibrant part of the Indian economy.

The company also noted in the release that the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) would likely carry out a consultation process for the revision of telecom tariffs.

The release stated that despite the growth in data consumption and 4G coverage across the country, there are still over 40 crore Indian consumers who have not benefitted from the advent of the latest technologies.

"The ambitious objectives of the ‘Digital India’ mission can be achieved only if India is made '2G-mukt' in the shortest time-frame possible," stated the release.

To that end, the release also noted that Jio is committed to bringing the 40 crore 2G customers to experience and participate fully in the Digital India eco-system.

The release also noted that:

-Jio is cooperating;

-Jio will do whatever regulation provides;

-Jio is interested in growth of data consumption;

- Jio wants to ensure all 2G users migrate to 4G;

-Jio believes that price increase be done in a manner to meet the compliance with regulation and still giving value to consumers.
